Theater Program to Host Festival of Student-Directed One-Act Plays

The Rutgers University–Camden theater program continues its 2013-2014 season with “Future 6,” a festival of student-directed one-act plays.

Performances are 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 27 to Saturday, March 29 in the Black Box Studio Theater on the Rutgers–Camden campus.

The Rutgers–Camden festival will seek to give audiences diverse glimpses of the future. From a new couple’s personal future together to a post-apocalyptic scene about a vigilante street soldier in true survival mode, each of these six one-act pieces presents a different take on what “the future” means.

Directed by Rutgers–Camden students, “Future 6” features a mix of popular one-acts and student-written works.

The plays and the student directors and authors, along with hometown and high school attended, are as follows:

“Fifth Edition,” written and directed by senior theater major Cooper Gorelick, a resident of Cherry Hill and a graduate of Cherry Hill West High School.

“Death in a Diner,” written and directed by junior theater major Alex Scheinberg, a resident of Collingswood and a graduate of Collingswood High School.

“Numbers in the Air” written and directed by senior history major Sean Lynch, a resident of Collingswood and a graduate of Paul VI High School in Haddon Township.

“Controlling Interest” by Wayne Rawley, directed by senior theater major Sean Quinn, a resident of Santa Clarita, Calif., and a graduate of Golden Valley High School in Santa Clarita, Calif.

“Ferris Wheel” by Mary Miller, directed by junior theater major Megan Farley, a resident of Franklinville and a graduate of Gloucester County Institute of Technology in Sewell.

“The Philadelphia” by David Ives, directed by senior theater, religion, and philosophy major Michael Hess, a resident of Laurel Springs and a graduate of Highland Regional High School in Blackwood.

Tickets are $10 for general admission and $7 for non-Rutgers students with a valid ID. Rutgers–Camden students may obtain two tickets free of charge at the Impact Booth in the Campus Center with their Rutgers University ID.

The Black Box Theater is located in the Fine Arts Complex on Third Street, between Cooper Street and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge on the Rutgers–Camden campus. For directions to Rutgers–Camden, visit camden.rutgers.edu.
